October 2016 - Taste of the Wight Magazine


I was really excited to be commissioned by 'Taste of the Wight' to draw a picture for their October-December 2016 edition of the magazine. They asked me to include autumn/winter produce, so we did a bit of a tour around the local shops (seafood from Captain Stan's, bread from the Island Bakers, veg from Barrow Boys and my dad's allotment). It was great to draw things that I wouldn't normally draw - and has inspired me to add some different images to my portfolio.


Showtime at the Garlic Farm!

14 February - 19 March 2017.

I was invited to have exclusive use of the gallery in the restaurant at the Garlic Farm, Newchurch, Isle of Wight, where I had prints and other products for sale. I will hopefully be there again later in 2017.
